Geographic Information Science Overview
The Geographic Information Science (GISc) programs at undergraduate and graduate levels are designed to prepare students for careers in the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Mapping and Remote Sensing (RS) as well as their applications in various fields (e.g. planning, marketing, crime mapping, health, environmental protection, and natural resource management). The degrees are particularly appropriate for those who intend to work for government (at all levels) or for private businesses. GISc majors are encouraged to choose such minors as planning, environmental management and tourism, that complements their GISc career interests.
The Geography Department offers the option to specialize in Geographic Information Science for an undergraduate degree or minor. There is also an option for a G.I.S. Certificate.
